	When I was at Wallington I mentioned to you a proposal Sr. Edwd. Blackett had made to Sr. Walter about dividing their Estate at Winlington.  I then told you something of the Nature of that Estate & shall at the next Opportunity you give me acquaint you further with the particulars necessary for you to know before you and Mr. Bates proceed to make such division wch. Sr. Edwd. & Sr. Wr. are desirous of having set about soon 

	Mr. Bates will probably call upon you in a little time to talk the Matter over with whom you will concur in every thing that you judge will be for Sir Walter’s Interest in this Matter     

                                                                                                                             I am etc     HR

Ps  Mr. Robt Forster Will give no more than £70 for Lucker Tithes etc wch. S. Wr. has agreed to take for this year
